  • I did ask Harrison (Mica and Isaak's doctor) about Mica's tummy issues again. Every couple weeks he gets diarrhea. Then a day or two later I get what he's had. This has been going on a while (since the end of September). I've went through our food, not sure this is it because Travis hasn't gotten anything. I've switched us to Soy milk, push the yogurt intake, still every couple weeks tummy issues. I'm thinking we might have IBS Irritable Bowel Syndrome? It happens with Mica only on Preschool days, then with me after he's gotten it. Stress brings this on. I've always had a sensitive tummy. I'm going to look into it more.


  • Isaak had a well 6 month visit today. He's all good. He weighs 15 lbs. 12 oz. (20%) and is 26.5" (55%). Mica was always 10% on weight and 70% on height. Isaak has what Travis calls "hams" for legs. His head circumference is good too 42.2 cm. They worry about head circumference with having had meningitis. He has his hearing test next week. Harrison his doctor thinks he'll pass with flying colors, but it's good to be on the safe side. Isaak got lots of shots, even his first part of his flu shot. He barely cried. What a sport.

RaZberry Teether

  • I just got Isaak this teether that all the moms in my Baby and Me Group have been raving about. It's called a RaZberry teether. It's $5.00. I got mine off a site that has no shipping:
  • Bumpy texture soothes your baby's gums.
  • The first hands-free all silicone teething pacifier.
  • Stimulation multi-textured teether, soothes while they play.
  • Non-Toxic 100% medical grade silicone.
  • BPA & Phthalate Free.
  • I got Isaak the Blackberry one. It's too early to tell if he likes it.

Busy Times

  • I have to stay late at work tonight and next Tues. night for Career Explorers. Travis and I are going to an auction at The Bemis where one of his sculptures is at on Fri. night. We celebrate my sister's birthday Sun. night. Then next Wed. we go out of town to celebrate Thanksgiving, our nephew Payton's birthday and Christmas with Travis' side. Busy, busy! I so wish I didn't have to stay late at work (on these Tues. nights), but I do get comp time for it. It will be interesting traveling with the boys for 5 hours. I hope all goes well! It always makes me nervous traveling with a baby.
